Siobhan Louise Cairney's insight:

This animated video, created for a government council in England, is solely related to the topic of 'The Important of Preparing Food Hygienically and The Dangers of Not Following Safe Practices'.

 

The video discusses that there are 4 important aspects in relation to food hygiene which include;

- personal hygiene (wash hands after the toilet, after handling raw food, and wash hands before touching cooked foods).
 
- storing food correctly (refrigerator should be set at a certain temperature, check best-before dates, where to keep raw and cooked meat in the refrigerator).

 

- cross contamination (Use different chopping boards, clean utensils, wash hands).

 

- correct cooking (make sure food is hot throughout).

Ride the Food Label Game- Fun Game for Kids, Reading Food Nutrition Labels, Learning Nutrition Labeling Information

Ride the Food Label Game- Fun Game for Kids, Reading Food Nutrition Labels, Learning Nutrition Labeling Information | Technology Resources; Promoting a Hygienically Safe and Healthy Diet within the Classroom | Scoop.it
Ride the Food Label Game With A Talking Food Label!
Siobhan Louise Cairney's insight:

The resource above 'The Food Label Game' is related to a website called Nourish Interactive which offers a variety of information and resources relating to nutrition for children. 
'Nourish Interactive' was founded by Ms Maggie LaBarbera - who was an Intensive Care Unit Nurse for many years and who has also witnessed many young people with obesity problems.

 

This game provides information, through both audio and visual means, in relation to servings and nutrients on food labels, for example, an explanation of total fat, and why you should choose foods that are low in saturated fat and trans fat.

 

Once the information session is over, it is time for students to play the game!  There are many 'rounds' in this game, in which students have to locate parts of the food label for example 'serving size'.  Another round/activity within this game is where students must choose which food is (for example) lower in cholesterol from three different food labels.

 

Additionally, this game relates to the Australian Curriculum; Technologies; Design and Technologies; Year 3 and 4 through the content descriptor of;

 

Investigate food and fibre production and food technologies used in modern and traditional societies (ACTDEK012)

 

Specifically through the elaboration of;

 

Investigating the labels on food products to determine how the information provided contributes to healthy eating, for example ingredients and nutrition panels

The YouTube clip above 'Dishin' the Nutrition Rap' is a song which promotes the inspection of food labels on food packaging to discover the nutritional content.

 

This resource would be particularly effective when introducing this topic to students to enhance motivation and engagement.

 

The YouTube clip would be most appropriate for students in Years 3 and 4 as it links directly to the Australian Curriculum; Technologies; Design and Technologies content descriptor of;

Siobhan Louise Cairney's insight:

This YouTube video is a hand washing tutorial for children.

This video would be particularly helpful as an introductory activity for a lesson related to food hygiene.

This Pin was discovered by Julie Heyd. Discover (and save!) your own Pins on Pinterest. | See more about healthy eating, charts and kids.
Siobhan Louise Cairney's insight:

The image above is a 'Fit kid's healthy eating chart' which was posted on Pinterest by Julie Heyd.  A lot of Julie's picture posts on Pinterest are related to food and nutrition, along with primary school activities.

 

I believe this activity would promote a healthy diet amongst students (in any year level) through setting expectations of daily Fruit, Vegetable and Water intakes and asking the students to record this on the chart.  I believe this activity would also encourage student's to make healthy choices in relation to their food and drink consumption.

 

The chart only runs for 4 weeks, however this could be done for a longer period of time to promote a healthy diet throughout the year, which would hopefully lead to life-long healthy food choices.

 

Furthermore, this activity links to the Australian Curriculum; Technologies for all year levels through the content descriptors of;

Used for information and research by students and educational institutions worldwide, the Indigenous Australia has quickly established itself as a valuable resource on Aboriginal art, history and culture in Australia.
Siobhan Louise Cairney's insight:

This resource, provided by www.indigenousaustralia.info can assist both students and teachers in gaining knowledge in relation to Indigenous Australians and Food Technology, Food Preparation, and Food Rules and Laws.

 

Additionally, the information provided within the Food Preparation section allows students to understand that food preparation is closely links to a hygienically safe diet.  This is done through the website stating that "Many foods are not safe to be eaten raw or untreated so they are prepared in different ways".  The website introduces this through the subheadings of; washing, grinding, pounding, straining, grating, boiling, and tossing, and provides an explanation of each and why this is done in Indigenous cultures.

 

Additionally, this resource links to the Australian Curriculum; Technologies; Design and Technologies Year 5 and 6 content descriptor of;

Siobhan Louise Cairney's insight:

The above video was created by www.cesamaniego.com, which is the centre for Education in Samaniego, Columbia.

 

'The Food Groups Song' is beneficial for children as it describes types of foods and which food groups they belong too.  The song also informs children of what food groups are good for you and the food group which is not so good for you in relation to healthy eating.

Siobhan Louise Cairney's insight:

 

The resource above named 'Smart Choices; Healthy Food and Drink Supply Strategy for Queensland Schools' is a policy introduced by the Queensland Government.  In particular, the two sectors of; The Department of Education, and the Arts, and Queensland Health.

 

This resource is valuable to both teachers and/or students.  The policy gives examples of  'green' foods - have plenty,  'amber' foods - select carefully, and 'red' foods - occasional foods and drinks. 

Furthermore, the policy also outlines in each section how to identify whether a food is 'green', 'amber', or 'red' through investigating the nutritional value, in particular by locating the amount of saturate fat and kilojoules present on food labels.

Siobhan Louise Cairney's insight:

This resource was added to Pinterest by a woman named Kathy O'neill, who I believe is one of the founders of www.mypersonalhygiene.com

 

The link/picture within the Pinterest page takes viewers to an external website where there are multiple hygiene activities (including food hygiene!) and worksheets to match these activities.

 

The activities related to food hygiene are very hands on and provide students with authentic experiences. 

 

There are three levels of worksheets, ranging from easier to harder, which could be used for Prep-2 (easy), Year 3 & 4 (moderate) and Year 5 & 6 (hard).

 

The activities and worksheets aim to facilitate student learning through four broad objectives;

 

-  Making children aware of the importance of good food hygiene.

-  Showing the areas of the kitchen and the foods where germs are most likely to develop.

-  Introducing easy-to-follow hygiene rules.

Developing healthy eating habits in children is important. This post list ways to promote eating habits that are essential for being healthy.
Siobhan Louise Cairney's insight:

'Developing Healthy Eating Habits in Children' is a blog post created by an educator named Trisha.  Trisha's blog has a lot of useful resources for teachers, as well as many activities for primary-aged students.

 

In this particular post, Trisha has listed a number of ways to promote healthy eating habits within the classroom through useful tips and activities.  Furthermore, throughout the blog there are external links to other useful resources and activities for teachers to use within the classroom.

 

Finally, I believe this blog post is beneficial to both parents and teachers who are wishing to teach children about healthy eating habits by not only providing parent/teacher tips such as ‘set a good example’ but also by introducing a range of activities for students to undertake.
